The Filming Face

Hi my lovelies, so as I recently explained in a blog post I am starting the wonderful and crazy world of Youtube :D

Today I filmed my third video (the first two were trial runs to get my confidence going), I decided the best thing to get me started was to film the ever predictable 'beauty guru' obvious, the "what's in my makeup bag" video!

Its actually been really fun to film, getting used to talking to no-one is actually surprisingly easy the hardest partest is strangely the editing, its super hard to get your head around and unless you have had some sort of training in it you will most likely struggle as I have, I cant even cut parts out yet haha!

So todays post is dedicated to my 'Filming Face' - what I wore for my first video..

I was really nervous about how to do my makeup as I wanted to represent myself to exactly who I am, I didn't want to over-do it, I wanted to keep things to how I would usually apply my makeup just a tad more put together for my viewers :)

I used Lancôme - Tient Idole Ultra as it is a good foundation for me as I like abit of coverage that will still allow my skin to breath (it can get a little hot being all flustered infront of the camera you know!)
I also applied a little Collection - Lasting Perfection concealer under the ol bags under my eyes and down the bridge of nose as a slight contour, along with a touch of my Illamsqua cream blush in Seduce to add a pinched flush to my cheeks just to make me look a little more awake than zombiefied, lastly for the base I brushed some MAC Mineralize Skin Finish - Adored to give me a healthy glow and highlight on the tops of my cheekbones, I 'adore' this highlighter, its the perfect shade for me as im just a little on the pale side!

Loving the shot I managed to grab here haha & excuse the top being a tad see-through (oops) #filmingfail.

Prepping the lips was a must before anything could be applied to them as for some reason I seem to have awoken with super dry chapped lips today so I used my Lush Lip Scrub - Bubblegum (tastes freaking amazing) with some Lanolips Lemonade Lip-Aid to make them all soft again I then used my favourite formula glosses at the moment - Tanya Burr - Exotic Island which has to be one of the prettiest blue pinks imaginable, and makes your teeth look white white - always good for being on film :)

Eyes and brows were kept pretty simple, as I explained earlier I didn't want to stray to far from my usual everyday look so kept it muted with MAC's Naked Lunch and Satin Taupe shadows light brushed over the lids, my sleek brow kit in light, I only applied the shadow to my brows as the gel can be a little heavy for the daytime and is slightly too dark for me, then set this all in place with my No7 Brow Set Gel :)

I really hoped you liked this post and having a little delve into a sneak-peek of what will be coming up on my channel soon, atleast once ive mastered the technique of editing!

See you soon, Frankie xxx
